Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: the Caribbean

Spent a fortnight on the Celebration in the Caribbean from 20th Dec 2017 to 3rd Jan 2018 and to be honest it was a great holiday apart from the very very poor entertainment from the cheesy dancers performing the same old shows in the Broadway Lounge and not at a decent level at all ,they were badly out of sync and the sound was rubbish ,to say they had some technical issues was not inspiring any confidence at all ,must do better !! sack the sound man ! Also in the Broadway Lounge was a guest comedian for the first week and another for the 2nd week ,let me start with the first weeks shambolic performance ,He was diabolical his jokes were older than the ship itself ,I really cant recall anybody laughing at all.

The second week the comedian was equally as bad. we and other passengers found him racist and unfunny all his show mainly consisted of was slagging off the people from Liverpool, it was embarrassing, old hat and disgraceful . Waring a ridiculous suit to perform in does not make you funny, who the hell booked these halfwits.

The singers around the ship were good until 2 of the acts went off ill with throat infections as did my wife and numerous other guests. The Cruise director did not replace these acts so again it was more lack of entertainment although they were advertised to perform in the daily cruise news.

The Game shows in Liberties were rubbish, using the same old format... shabba , yawn yawn ...

If it wasn't for the fabulous staff , from the cabin stewards, cleaners, bar staff , waiters etc holding the ship together it would have been a disaster , they even had a staff show that was excellent and far more entertaining than the so called professionals , well done to them , not to forget the food in the restaurant and Lido it was spot on , well done to little chimiy (restaurant manager) and his team. Tui / Marella need a complete overhaul with there entertainment they provide ,it was a load of rubbish. but apart from them it was a great cruise........shabba..........
